Re: Machine leaks

Mine leaked water for a long time - They finally came & fixed it saying unfortunately I got one that was put together on a Friday - or a dud! They did some gasket or rubber adjustments & fixed it!

Re: Machine leaks

Lift it up about a foot in the front and put something under it to hold it. Then use it and see where the leak is coming from. Maybe the pump or hose that goes to the drum. Have fun!

Re: Machine leaks

My Kenmore leaked. Checked all the hoses - all OK. Pulled the Inside Basket out (this is the one that has all the holes in it and spins) to see that the outer Basket had some rust spots in the bottom. One of the rust spots had erupted and when I removed the crust, it was clear that this was the spot where water was leaking. Replacing this basket was cost prohibitive - could have bought a new one for the price. So I drilled the hole a bit larger and then tapered the edges of the hole with a much larger drill bit. With a small grinder I then ground the ceramic around the hole so that I had a round spot smaller than a dime. I then plugged the hole with epoxy. used the already older machine for years afterward and new home owners kept it and used it to wash their pets bedding and the like. It was a beautiful solution - took some time but saved alot of money. This solution should work for any top loading machine.

Re: Machine leaks

I am currently in the process of replacing the large gray bellow due to cracks and five years of wear and tear. I first noticed some small leak from the bottom of the washer. I checked all of my fittings with no luck. I finally found the cracked and torn bellow to be my culprit.

Check and clean det dispenser box(remove drawer and wash same also the roof of the disp housing) if the disp is leaking its probably the front holes allowing water to leak forward and run accross top of front panel seal off the front row of holes

Re: Machine leaks

Leaking water usually comes from hoses or connections. Be sure that water appearing to be a leak isn't drain water from a backed-up standpipe (see HERE for information on clearing clogged drains). NOTE: To prevent serious flood damage that can occur if washing machine supply hoses burst, be sure to install "no-burst" stainless-steel mesh hoses and lever-type shutoff valves, as shown in the illustration. With these, you can easily turn off the levers for both hot and cold water between wash days. 1) Check the fittings where hoses connect to the faucets and to the back of the washing machine. Also look for worn or leaky hoses. Tighten couplings or hose clamps if necessary, or replace hoses altogether (be sure to turn the water off before removing hoses and drain them into a bucket after disconnecting them). 2) Determine whether machine is over-sudsing during wash loads-- this can cause the entire washing machine to overflow. Reduce suds by pouring a mixture of 1/2 cup of white vinegar and 1 quart water into the washer. Then switch to less detergent or use a low-sudsing variety. 3) Call a repairperson. The machine may have a faulty basket gasket or tub seal and bearing that must be replaced.

Water coming out of the bottom of the machine

Sometimes, what may seem like a washing machine leaking from bottom locations is actually one that leaks slowly from other spots. Slow leaks can accumulate beneath your washing machine making it seem like you have a bottom leak. For more help identifying the exact point of the leak, see Washing machine leaking.

Bottom leaks may be better identified using a newspaper. Just dry the floor and lay the newspaper beneath the washing machine before you test for leaks. Darkened sections map out your water leak. This method is not always foolproof, however. The best diagnosis will come from a qualified service professional inspecting your machine.

If your washing machine is leaking from bottom in the rear, you may need a replacement pump and professional installation. The leak could also be caused by a faulty air dome seal or a hole in the tub. For more troubleshooting steps to tackle that leak, see Washing machine leaking from bottom. I hope that helps!

Machine leaks when clothes are washed but not

this could be a simple issue or a severe issue.
if you feel adventurous disconnect unit, and remove Rear access panel. inspect the rear bearring at the pulley, check for oil leakage and water residue. if there is water around the bearring the unit requires an overhaul. if nothing you should be ok.
it could be a disconnected vent at the top of the machine.
remove front access panel and inspect all rubber boots and connections for water.
this is best done just after washer has leaked, inspect where water is comming from.
there are many things that could be causing this.

2003 Whirlpool Duet Washer clear water pooling in drum after use.

When the machine is off, there are only two ways water could possibly enter. 1 Check the drain hose install, that it is not installed deep in the standpipe, if the hose is shoved too deep, it can sometimes siphon (rare with front loaders) water back into the machine.
2. Most likely cause, a slow leak from the water valve. Sometimes the water solenoid will not close completely, and you will get a very, very slow leak into the machine.
If not the drain hose, try shutting off the water supply valves when done using the machine, if that takes care of it, you may want to replace the machine's inlet valve.

Close your faucet valve & unscrew your hoses to check screens on hoses & machine. Clean out well. Refit, check for leaks. Water shd be in good pressure. If this is not the problem change your inlet valve, it is easily done.

Close your external inlet valve to the machine. Disconnect hose of washing machine from the valve; keep a bucket there and open the valve to see if water comes well. Next check the screens (filters) on the hose, clean well. This shd be done on both ends of the hose/s. Refit carefully. Check for leaks. If water still (don't forget to open the valve!) does not enter machine change the inlet valve of your wash machine. Can be done yourself. Rate me pl...........if helped.

My washing machine keeps leaking from the bottom

There are many possible cause of a leak. If it is set to portable make sure that the faucet is off after the cycle. You also need to make sure that you are not over loading the washing machine. Please refer to owners manual how much is the capacity your washing machine can take. Drain lines is also a possibility for this leak as well as the intake inlet. If it's leaking in the center most likely the bearing have broke off and you might need a new center seal. This job requires a professional to be replaced. My advice for Avanti users is to return it and buy something else that is trusted and branded for quality and performance.
